Penny Cornah was presented the ADCO Constructions Award for Achievement

On Friday 19 October, Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) Executive Director, Penny Cornah, was awarded the ADCO Constructions Award for Achievement as a Business Woman at the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Queensland Awards.

This prestigious award was presented to Penny in front of over 500 industry peers who came together to celebrate the excellent work performed by women in the construction industry. This award recognises Penny as a leader in Queensland’s construction industry.

MPAQ is a peak industry body representing plumbing contractors throughout Queensland from sole operators to medium sized plumbing businesses through to large contracting firms. MPAQ represent over 1,300 contracting members across Queensland, which equates to around 4,000 plumbing professionals.

MPAQ is one of Queensland’s most influential trade associations and is in a position to highlight the pivotal role that plumbing professionals play in the living standards of all Australians.

With such a pivotal and high profile role, Penny identifies her key responsibility as heading the organisation that is the conduit between protecting community health and the environment. Penny is a strong leader in a male dominated industry and has earned respect throughout the plumbing community. She has developed strong relationships within the Queensland Government ensuring the industry’s voice is heard at the highest levels.

MPAQ President, Kent Vickers, said “With her positive attitude, hard work and dedication, and drive to make a greater difference, Penny is an inspiration not only to the women in the construction industry but also to everyone that has the pleasure of working with her.”

Penny is clearing the way for many women to follow in her footsteps and is actively working towards increasing the number of qualified female plumbers.

MPAQ and the Women’s Plumbing Alliance was proud to support the 2018 NAWIC Awards, with members of the Women’s Plumbing Alliance Committee in attendance, including both female plumbers, business owners, and office managers.
